Taster’s Review:

Tonight, I am revisiting an old friend!  I have enjoyed this tea previously, and have even written a review about it previously.

This tea tastes very fresh and clean without being too overwhelmingly minty.  That is to say, that I enjoy mint, but sometimes too much mint in the teacup can be a bit… well, too much for me.  Fortunately, this cup has a nice balance of flavor:  mint with a pleasantly sweet green tea flavor.

Because of its somewhat mellow character, this makes a very refreshingly crisp iced tea as well as a restorative hot tea.  It has a slightly sweet flavor to it already, so you needn’t add any sweetener.  However, I do recommend trying a thin slice of lemon with this tea.  Yum!
